MissionTo provide shelter and support to pregnant and parenting women in our community. We offer a caring home and provide for the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of women in need during pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood.
Michael House Supportive Housing (Emily's Place)Just over a year ago, Kelly was lost when a caregiver, her beloved grandmother, passed away at a young age. Kelly was pregnant, unsure of her future and considering abortion. After a cousin told her about Michael House, Kelly applied and moved in one week later. It was here that Kelly found the support she needed. She found hope. A few months later, Kelly and her beautiful baby Sadie moved into their own unit at our new Supportive Housing building. She is now living independently and proactively working towards her goals for the future. Kelly has worked hard on budgeting and has learned so much about attachment parenting. She has come a long way in cultivating strong, healthy relationships and has great supports around her. It was a big accomplishment when she finished high school! She has also been dealing with past trauma in order to move forward in a healthy way.
